Art Around Every Bend in the River


This September, celebrate the intersection of art and nature in the scenic St. Croix River Valley.

The natural beauty of the St. Croix River has attracted artists and outdoor enthusiasts for generations. This wild and scenic river and its tree covered bluffs create a breathtaking backdrop for Take Me to the River.

Come experience this one of a kind “festival of festivals” as you explore the region’s art fairs, festivals and open studios.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the river and the incredible art it inspires. You don’t want to miss it!
